A window into a different culture

I've found the Mosou fascinating ever since I first heard of them. Here's a thread by a guy intimately familiar with their practices. Their alternative family relationships are fascinating. There are no fathers in their culture, only uncles. (with some exceptions)

I watched a good documentary on this group but I can't remember the title. However I remember people do travel there now at some attempt at sex tourism.

The idea of walking marriages reads to some people, as mentioned in your article, that the women are promiscuous. So people flock there from other parts of China hoping for loose women and free love.

That's what I mean by sex tourism.

Too late. We adopted SOME of the practices but not all which is why we have what we have. We try to adopt the "good", aka convenient parts of the culture but don't want the inconvenience that comes with it.
